lyrics

Got on a bus in some city on a river,
I was looking to get going somewhere.
And I took it as far as some faraway place,
That was just like the one I left there.
And I guess that I needed to check up on something,
That always already I knew,
They offered me the world, but I only wanted you.

Took a job in an office in a big downtown high-rise,
Where the money was good,
And I came home at night thinking, "This is the life,"
Thinking I should be happy, I should.
But I was still young then, I thought I'd have time for,
All the things in my life I didn't do,
They offered me the world, but I only wanted you.

Now we're sitting outside on your parent's back porch,
A little bit older, a little bit bare.
And it's cold out tonight, it's the end of December,
But it doesn't seem like you care.
And I guess just this minute I realized something
That always already I knew,
They offered me the world, but I only wanted you.
